Cocktail party November 8

This was our first cocktail party hosted in the new house (and my first cocktail party not imbibing). By all accounts it was a success.  There were 16 people in total, including us and Edward, so the kitchen/dining area was a little crowded.  We started serving the first course just after 5:00PM and dessert was being cleaned up at around midnight.  Everyone seemed to really enjoy the food, drinks and conversations.
